More than Ever, Make a Difference

The 2013 Season of Prayer for State Missions is observed throughout the month of September in churches across Kentucky.  Join us as we pray for missions in Kentucky and give to the Eliza Broadus Offering.  This is the 100th anniversary of our state missions offering which was started at the recommendation of Eliza Broadus in 1913. You can learn more about this remarkable lady and her influence in a biography by Dr. Jack Birdwhistell.

Our 2013 theme verse is Luke 8:8: “Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown.”  A great example of this is the EBO investment in the Victory Baptist Church in Shelbyville.  I wrote about this congregation back in May and told about the new portable baptistry they had purchased with help from the state missions offering.  I received this message from Marc Webb about Victory’s plans to support EBO.

Hi Joy.  I hope and pray that you are having a blessed day.  I just wanted to update you on our upcoming Bake Sale at the church.  As I told you a few weeks ago, all of our proceeds from this Bake Sale will go directly to the Eliza Broadus Offering.  Our church will be stationed in front of the main doors of Walmart on Sept. 7th.  We will be starting the sale around 8 a.m., and we will stay at Walmart until we run out of items.  We are definitely excited about this Bake Sale, and the part that we can play in supporting missions here in Kentucky.  Thanks again for all your help.  If you want any more information, just let me know.  God Bless. Marc Webb, Victory Baptist Church.

So, if you are anywhere near the Shelbyville Walmart this Saturday, September 7, please stop by and buy some baked goods from Victory Baptist folks. You will not only support the offering, but you will be a great encouragement to this congregation.

Be sure to read the “State Missions Special Edition” which is included in this week’s edition of the Western Recorder.  Encourage your church to show one of the state missions video clips each Sunday during the month of September as we see how more than ever, we can make a difference through praying, giving, and ministry.
